  • Avoid these as apparently the newer WDs have soldered on controller boards which means you cannot shuck the drive and stick it into another enclosure/adapter cable if the controller board dies. Worth double checking if you're still keen.

  • Only sporting USB-C for convenience, not performance boost from what I understand.

  • Wait for the next Seagate deal like this one:

    Opened mine up for a “look-see”. The drive is a Seagate Barracuda 2.5” ST5000LM000.

  • Most of these use Seagate drives, like the guy above me mentioned. It's always better to just directly get a Seagate drive rather than one of the many branded derivatives (A friend of mine paid nearly $20 more than my Seagate 1TB for a Sony 1TB. Not much, but $20 is $20)

    • WD use Seagate drives?

      • Of course, I shucked a Seagate recently and out popped a Toshiba.

        On a serious note, doesn't feel like a bargain here. 5TB portables have been cheaper.

  • The black one was $159 a week ago
